With over 20 million events aggregated in only a few months, Eventblimp finds events for any variety of interests and is available in the Apple App Store now.

We want Eventblimp to be the one and only source people need to find everything going on around them with ease," said Chris Good, CEO and Founder. "We have more events than any other source, and we aggregate them into a beautiful map for the best user experience possible. And not only are the website and app easy to use, but there are various benefits for event goers and promoters."

  • Powerful searching capabilities that let users screen events by location, category, date, time of day and cost in addition to text searching.

  • Never have to struggle with "what are we going to do tonight?" again!

Benefits for Event Promoters
